Moon Juice Blue Beauty Adaptogen Protein Powder – Hands down my favorite protein powder. While I have not yet gotten down with the Brain and Spirit Dusts, Moon Juice Adaptogen Protein Powder packs a serious nutritious-punch and allows me to easily incorporate Adaptogens (read a very trendy and healthy item) into my daily routine. I add this protein powder into my daily smoothie along with a lot of other goodness and feel great going into my day! I also love how unlike many other protein powders, this blends smoothly and isn’t overly sweet. Yum, I already can’t wait ’till tomorrow’s breakfast!
Barney Butter – While there are endless options for nut butters, not all are created equal and one of my favorites is Barney Butter Almond Butter for their use of high-quality, simple ingredients. I am particularly obsessed with their single serving packages (80 – 100 calories each) that make for the perfect on-the-go snack and help with portion-control – something we all need a little assistance with! As the mother of three young, active boys we’re always moving. Whether we’re between sports or traveling, Barney Butter has become a staple in mine and my family’s travel snack packs!
Dirty Lemon Collagen – Plain and simple, collagen is what holds our bodies together. Sounds pretty important, doesn’t it? It is, however, as we age, the production of this essential protein decreases (read, weak nails, wrinkly skin and joint pain). I’m a fan of using collagen supplements to help support the bodies natural production. Dirty Lemon’s Collagen+ drink combines hydrolyzed marine collagen peptide with lemon and cayene pepper to make for a tasty drink that detoxes, refuels, energizes and might just increase your metabolism all in one. With less than 1 gram of sugar, they keep it clean and simple. The pretty packaging doesn’t hurt either.
Nibmor Extreme Daily Dose – With 80% cacao, this dark chocolate is a favorite of mine and my clients. Nibmor is known for the use of high-quality organic, fair-trade ingredients, making this treat that much sweeter. These individually-packed, antioxidant-rich pieces are pre-portioned (yes I am a fan of portioned treats!) and make for the perfect snack to keep at your desk or in your travel bag. If I’m feeling a mid-afternoon slump, a piece of Nibmor is enough to perk me right back up often paired with a green tea.
Nona Lim Chicken Tumeric Bone Broth – Bone broth is getting a lot of press right now as it should. Not only am I a fan of soup during these cold winter months but bone broth contains many healing nutrients including collagen which helps maintain skin integrity as well as heal our gut linings. Nona Lim makes consuming Bone Broth super easy. Take it off the shelf, heat and sip no matter where you are. I tend to treat it like a cup of tea or a soothing afternoon snack.
